Kotowski praises state House override of veto against heroin bill
State Sen. Dan Kotowski (D-IL) released a statement on Wednesday cheering the House vote to override Gov. Bruce Rauner's amendatory veto of a bill that takes a multi-faceted approach to curbing the growing heroin epidemic.
“I applaud Representative Lou Lang for his continued leadership and the Illinois House for coming together in a bipartisan fashion that will save lives and taxpayer dollars," Kotowski said. "Investing in heroin-addiction prevention gives people struggling with substance abuse the opportunity to survive and become productive members of our society."
Kotowski said the state has an obligation to enact such protections to ensure victims, families and youths in the community are protected.
